off a stunning upset in florida and michele bachmann comes in last, is she about to drop out? >> and the jobs? the president says stop whining. >> stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying, we're going to press off. >> dave: is the president just working on his campaign? we report, you decide on that new tone. >> clayton: check this out. an eight year old's kids cage fighting match. some say it's no more dangerous than playing football. certainly creepy. anyway, "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ >> oh, would you let your kid do that, cage fighting. >> alisyn: i really wouldn't at this point. he's four. >> clayton: dave, how old is your son.
>> dave: loves sports, he's three. >> clayton: they said it's not submission fighting like he we saw in denver. usc fight. we'll get into that later on. >> alisyn: politics, something amazing happened in florida last night. >> clayton: this is a cage match. >> alisyn: the straw poll was set in florida, okay, rick perry, the front runner at the moment or surely mitt romney. >> clayton: no, not at all. >> alisyn: herman cain was the run away winner. >> clayton: when you say run away, it's double what rick perry got. 37% to what rick perry got and herman cain got. this isn't prevent perry's camp for saying it's a loss for mitt romney. he's been in five years and we were in five weeks. . >> dave: i'm he confused about the quote, mitt romney has been here five years and hasn't gained traction.
we've been here five months. the implication you haven't gained traction either. and if mitt romney has 14 and you have 15, neither gained traction. let's not highlight the fact that you haven't gained traction. a lot of delegates, it came down to the thursday night debate. they didn't like what they saw in rick perry and i think, if you watched that thursday debate. and said to shannon bream, people love herman cain, everything he he said. different crowd. this is an activist crowd, you pay to vote in this straw poll. >> alisyn: it's different than how iowa works. rec-- rick perry did campaign there and advertising. and in it to win it. mitt romney claims he wasn't paying a lot of money or investing time in running the straw poll. and he didn't. so rick perry by rights should have won, but you can never predict these things. >> clayton: absolutely, delegates, some are reporting
on foxnews.com and a lot of delegates going on record down there, the reason we didn't vote for rick perry, thursday night's debate. our opinion changed, they said as a result of the performance on thursday night. we thought he was the guy and questioning whether or not that was true. rick perry on saturday morning had pinned his entire hopes it seems on florida, saying his hopes are high on florida and basically that the future of what his complain hopes to do is all in florida. >> alisyn: what does that mean now, since he didn't win in florida, what does it mean and what does it mean for michele bachmann, came in dead last. and mention that she had a few weeks ago-- >> she did not compete down there, did not campaign. >> alisyn: sure, but behind rick santorum. >> dave: dead last. >> alisyn: john huntsman. here are the numbers, 1% of the florida straw poll. >> dave: the question being, what does it mean for the entire field? does it mean that herman cain
is someone to beat, the new front runner. remember what the governor of florida, rick scott said here on "fox & friends" on saturday. >> if history repeats itself, the ronald reagan won in 1979. george bush, george hw in '87 and bob dole. we've got a big turnout, over 3500 delegates, the activists in the state. they are the grass roots, the ones that get out the vote. so, today is a very important day to do well here. >> you know as well as i do, i lived in florida, so the point was, governor scott saying basically he he said it again on our show yesterday and earlier in the week, whoever wins yesterday, wins the straw poll and wins the nomination. >> alisyn: who decides the frontrunners, the polls or the media and tells you who the front runner is? after this, after this herman
cain victory the media must give him more prominence. >> dave: we just reflect the polls. we read the polls, every national poll, we'll ask perman kane about this at 9:15, every national poll has him in single figures. how does that lie and 75 bucks to vote. >> alisyn: where do the people get the name recognition from the media. we don't maugham of their minds. >> clayton: and we hear from twitter and facebook, why is he no one talking about ron paul's victory last night and you flip around a different morning shows and people are saying, oh, he won, but look at what am i sthel bachman did there, look what michele bachmann did there. >> dave: and rick scott really pack tracked whoever wins the poll wins the niem naks. i think he ran away from that.
they sent a grass roots message and i think ran away from that statement. >> alisyn: we're going to talk with herman cain on our program and we're in sync with the straw poll results and what he thinks happens now, and where he goss from here. >> clayton: where someone goes from here. president obama headed out on the campaign trail, yesterday speaking to the congressional black caucus and now goes to the west coast swing, like a baseball team, 10-day tour, three states, seven fundraisers, hoping to rake in millions of dollars and headed to washington state first. first to meet with his former microsoft chief operating officer, it's a brunch and you go go if you like. >> no, i can't. >> $35,000 per couple. >> alisyn: what? per couple? >> better be good bacon and eggs. >> alisyn: that sunday like some of the things we spend in new york city. >> clayton: either that or i-hop, $35,000 to have
breakfast with the president. >> dave: hoping to raise what, almost 2 million. >> clayton: 1.7 million. that's one. going to seven fundraisers and is expect toed bring in 8 million dollars and the one i thought were you going to be talking about the one happening at the home of, i guess cheryl sandberg, facebook's chief operating office officer. >> alisyn: as a couple, that's a bargain. >> clayton: he apparently he he might be meeting with lady gaga. >> dave: apparently, not yet confirmed. but, itoes appear-- >> for office. >> clayton: that's what she's going to wear by the way is. >> dave: it does appear that the president may strike a different tone on the west coast, what you heard him say to the congressional black caucus did not sound like the obama campaigning back in 2008. listen to what he had to say. >> i expect all of you with
me. take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes, shake it off. stop complaining, some grumbling, stop crying, we're going to press on. we've got work to do, cbc. >> alisyn: see. >> dave: stop complaining. >> alisyn: he's not talking to voters. that was a particular, that was an audience, the congressional black caucus, he he was saying stop you whining, stop your complaining. i thought he was speaking almost directly to maxine waters, says we support of the president, but we're getting tired. getting disenchanted with the president. he was talking to them, take off your bedroom slippers we've got work to do. >> clayton: there's grumbling with regards to the minority vote. "the washington post" says
pretty bluntly, overwhelmingly blacks are going to come out and support the president. that number slipped a little bit. the new vote in the white house, operation vote and target and go right to minorities to make up for some of the white males they've lost as part of the folks that voted for them in 2008. >> alisyn: at 8:20 eastern time we have on a guest, eric todd dilham. on to talk about he thinks the president has let down the black community and he has a block in which he he outlines it and going to come out with inflammatory, i should say provocative things to say about that. >> dave: it will be interesting to hear what he has to say about the jobs plan. that's number one. get that jobs plan passed. 447 billion dollar as you know, remember the rhetoric when he he initially put this out there. rosie predictions and create 1.9 million jobs, lower the unemployment 1%.
raise the gdp by 2%. that was what would happen if you would sign this bill and pass his jobs bill. those numbers all came from mark zandi ye, a moody's economist. he's now backtracked a little bit. >> clayton: he said when i said those things that's because, the entire jobs plan had to pass, not just piecemeal versions of it. and now, a number of economists going on the record, saying, look, even if this thing is pass right now won't do anything for quite a few years, at least three years down the road we won't see much turn around. >> he says his whole prediction was predicated on the idea that it would pass, that's obviously still an open question and that it would pass right now in this year. and paid for-- >> and he assumed that it was paid for and didn't know how the president would be raising taxes and all of that stuff. but he also said that the benefits of it will be mostly
seen, i think, in 2012 in terms of those predictions. >> the predictions of unemployment rate going down in 2012 and they expire. if they expire after a year because the stimulus funds dry up and when that happened, 9% or 9.1% unemployment. >> into 2014, the plan is a drag on the economy because the stimulus starts fading away. how does the president spin it now that the rosie predictions have changed. that will be interesting on the west coast swing. >> clayton: weigh in on them. firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll be debating these. >> alisyn: we have a fox news alert right now. a plane carrying tourists in nepal has crashed dying to land in heavy fog. all 19 on board killed, including two americans, and no further details have been released on them.
the buddha airlines turbo-prop plan went down kathmandu, it was returning after sightseeing trip at mt. everest. shane bauer, josh fatle are set, what a long odyssey and tell us where they are now. >> they are on the way home, shane bauer and josh fatel, left oman last night and we expect to see them some point today. there will be a photo op as they touch down and a media availability, a press conference later on in the day. and cost a million bucks to bail the two hikers out. in an iranian prison for two years, arrested because iran says they're american spies and because of the espionage charges and allegedly crossing the iranian border illegally, sentenced to years in prison
and they won't finish those. and on wednesday, it revealed they appeared to be healthy, but thin and the third hiker from the group sarah shoird was released and got engaged to shane bauer while they were in jail. we don't know yet if they've managed to set a date. >> alisyn: they may have had bigger things to deal with in the past 48 hours, but thanks, peter for that update. meanwhile, a developing story overnight, a new jersey man now charged with killing his wife after police found her body, in a cement filled drum inches from where the baby set. she was reported missing, he at the time her husband claimed she ran away after the two had an argument and he's now held on 1 million dollars bail. it's as big as a bus and weighs six tons, officials probably will never be able to pinpoint exactly where the
massive satellite plummeted in earth. they believe they plunged into the pacific ocean and bypassing lands. it could have fallen on parts of northwestern north america. >> you can't sell them on ebay, if you get them it's nasa property. >> clayton: it's dangerous, dangerous. >> alisyn: radioactive. >> hey, daddy look what i found in the back yard. >> dave: let's check with rick reichmuth. >> and my hand just fell off. >> where is my hand. >> perfect. a lot warmer across texas and people on twitter, saying they were sitting out on the patio, hot and stickier today. across the northern plains it's right there and thursday or friday before it leaves. in the meantime a lot of rain in the morning across the areas where the ohio and
mississippi rivers meet and that's going to continue today, and maybe two or three inches of rain and the mid atlantic, at least the coastal areas you're going to see quite a bit of rain as well. the west coast, this one system is pulling into the pacific northwest and it's going to bring rain and drop the temperatures in places like portland and seattle. this is hillary, now a category 3 hurricane moving away from land and yesterday we thought some development for this disturbance off the coast of florida and ty've dropped it to a zero percent chance and a lot of moisture and pulled up north in across the outer banks and such. this is ophelia, watching that, a 40 mile per hour storm and since yesterday, a new storm has been named with tropical depression 17 and now it's felipe. i don't think we'll worry about that here in the u.s., eith either. >> clayton: thank you, videos making the rounds out there might shock you. cage fighting for eight year
olds. take a look. >> dave: okay. >> alisyn: know get this, they're wrestling. >> clayton: $40 to get into this event. it's over in england. it packed a couple hundred people and people he when the video started surfacing people were outraged and calling it macabre. >> alisyn: exploitive what i'm calling it this morning. you can he see the adults just sitting around. >> clayton: having beers. >> alisyn: having beers watching two eight year olds attack each other, there's something warped about it. >> dave: and not making it up, there are adults having beers they don't show in the video. it's such a bizarre scene, but the organizers of the event, again in the u.k. not yet here in the u.s. i say yet, they say it's essentially designed to be wrestling, wrestling, why is it in a cage and look like far more than wrestling? >> there are a lot of defenders of it and we are going to have one on the mma,
a writer about mixed martial arts and say this is healthy and productive? they're not wearing productive gear. >> clayton: i did martial arts when i was young, went to matches, but it wasn't in a cage. >> alisyn: is that the only difference. >> dave: what clayton was doing was far, far different, it's a discipline as a child and this is brutality. but here is what the national society for prevention of cruelty to children, again, in the u.k. says. we strongly discourage parents letting their children take part in this kind of fighting. it's quite disturbing some involved in the bouts were as young as eight, an age when they're still developing physically and mentally. look it, we're trying to find some balance here. >> alisyn: we are. >> dave: and this is wrestling, they say, it was designed to be wrestling, where did they lose track of what it was designed to be? you tell me. when you're an eight year old and doing wrestling, are you wearing more protective gear.
>> clayton: yeah, you wear head gear. head gear. >> alisyn: that seems important for an eight-year-old. >> clayton: and a lot of times-- >> a kid-- >> it's unbelievable. let us know what you think about it, on twitter ff weekend, and get the e-mail machine fired up. i think you'll want to weigh in on this one. i know, alisyn, you go out with the husband once in while, a nice dinner once in a while. how would you like to go to dinner with ahmadnejad, the head of iran. >> alisyn: look, not only do you get to have dinner with him, he's buying and buying you, and he'll pay you $1500 to bhave dinner with him. he'll pay guests $1500. and apparently not a lot of takers and put the offer up there and people come up with strange excuses because they don't really feel like dining with him. >> dave: they work hard for the excuses because they fear the iranian--
>> do you want to go? ill he' go. >> dave: imagine the excuse you need to conjure up. people say dating back to the iranian revolution, paying workers to he lunch and go show up at demonstrations. >> alisyn: what do you mean, perhaps you're interested? 1500 bucks, right? not bad money for how long dinner is. >> clayton: i think i could come up with a few questions for him. >> dave: if you had a chance to go to dinner with mahmoud ahmadnejad, send your questions. >> dave: and coming up, you've seen these folks fed up with wall street's fat cats now protesting rain or shine. see what the latest demonstration did not go quite as planned. >> alisyn: did you see this at the republican debate? >> newt gingrich, calling your bluff. you really want to be president? >> no (laughter) >> and that's snl's take on

♪ >> okay. welcome back, folks, dave briggs, alisyn camerota, clayton morris. "saturday night live" is back and p finds their groove. >> clayton: during an election season, you want to test how good somebody does in a debate. they're back and a fake debate calling it like the 7th or 8th g.o.p. debate and it hasn't
happened yet, but take a look. >> i believe in social security is a ponzi scheme. i believe we need to build a fence to keep the illegals out. should any illegals come through and have children here, open our hearts and pay for their education. >> mitt romney might not be the perfect candidate, but he's the perfect candidate in comparison to the other candidates. and rick perry i'm a centrist, next to michele bachmann, a businessman. and next to newt gingrich. >> it's headed in a scary direction, just yesterday, i read a statistic that half, half of all marriages end in sweat pants. >> and rick santorum. >> alisyn: my husband thinks i don the sweat suit constantly in marriage and he may be right about that. >> dave: this was funny, it's funny your image of sweat
pants, and they shep smith the moderator and did herman cain and two guys and six others who can't win the white house, it was good stuff. more on that later. >> alisyn: we have news for you, let's get to the headlines. a bizarre twist in the story we've been following for you, steve stevenson, the nevada man who died while saving his friend from the grizzly bear. police say that he wasn't mauled to death as originally reported. it turns out he was shot by the very same friend that he had saved. that man's name is ty bell. police believe it was an accident and bell was trying to shoot the bear. no word yet on any charges that bell might face. after 13 hours of deliberating, a florida joir found millionaire developer bob ward guilty of second degree murder in the killing of his wife diane. her death in september, 2009 shortly after she was
scheduled to testify about her husband's business dealings and company's bankruptcy. 63-year-old ward could now face life in prison when he is he' sentenced in november. it looks like it could be all or nothing for amanda knox, prosecutors in the appeal trial are asking a judge to extend the sentence to life in prison. she was originally sentenced to 26 years behind bars for the murder of her roommate in italy and on the flip side. there is a possibility her appeal will work and she'll go free. if that happens she could be released back to the u.s. as early as next month. the second of occupied wall street protests are getting more tense. >> freedom! >> free! >> police arrested at least 80 people in new york city. demonstrating against the bank bailouts. officers tried to corral people who were being unruly with orange netting. and one woman was pepper sprayed. the police say because of
protester's disorderly contact. the banana man is headed back to school. 14-year-old brian thompson was running on the football field with a banana suit. he will have to stay on probation the rest of the week. i didn't know that was illegal. >> dave: the last guy in the banana suit tackled the gorilla suit guy in the cell phone store. >> alisyn: no. >> clayton: he has the whole collection of the videos at home. >> dave: maybe in a montage later. sports, a big matchup. morgantown with virginia and number 2, lsu took on the mountain nears and this sa bit of a mitch match. . play action passed and lsutv and the problem was for lsu was jefferson, the quarterback was out. no problem. and third quarter, morris
clayborne, watch and go. from the one yard line, it looks like he was done there at midfield and this kid has got some skills and 99 yards and defense was very strong. tigers win 47-21, three road wins against ranked opponents already? they're good. oklahoma state, texas a & m, and cowboys down 24-20 when weeden finds a wide open justin blackman. an easy touchdown, blackman drops the ball. oh, they're not happy in the press box. they would roar back after forcing four aggie turnovers and cowboys come back for a 30-29 win and a big one there. and red sox trying to stay ahead in the wild card race facing off against the yankees at the stadium and it's not going well for my red sox. starting pitcher john lester struggling and the yankees
blew it open with a jeter 3 run homer. and later it was montero, with the crush. >> dave: and boston with a 1 1/2 game lead over tampa in the wild card race, they are 5 and 17 the month of september. this could be one of the biggest collapses in the history of baseball. >> clayton: you're a rockies fan my nature, they're out. and then turn to a red sox fan. >> alisyn: a bad luck charm. >> clayton: go to my phillies, can you-- >> the phillies are up next. >> clayton: no, no, we don't want you. and bad luck, rick, if he comes over, keep him over there. >> oh, boy, not a good day, you just try your office mate. all right, guys, dark out here, it's a little early and so much cloud cover across the eastern seaboard, take a look the the weather maps, temperature-wise it's warm and muggy across the eastern
seaboard and a the lot of the coming week, very much feels like fall around parts of the great lakes, into the far northern plains and warm again across the south and today in the triple digits again. move forward, take a look at the satellite radar picture and you can see what's going on. the front is stalled out across the eastern seaboard, more rain in florida today and more rain across the eastern half of the carolinas, and then heavier rain where the low, the big upper level disturbance across the great lakes and continue to bring rain across areas of the ohio river valley and some will see rain the next three or four days and take until friday before this gets out of here. if you're dealing with a certain weather pattern, across the coming week, across the west, changes going on. another system into the pec northwest and rain and cooler air coming with t yesterday was such a nice day across the pacific northwest, today the temps drop by almost 20
degrees, just in front of that into the northern rockies, a big warm-up. temps in the upper 80's across parts of montana, extremely warm and warm across the south. 103 in fooiin phoenix and 100 fn antonio. and trop a few degrees in the northern rockies and 85 in denver, colorado. >> clayton: presidential hopefuls, rick perry and mitt romney may be the republican frontrunners, as we told you herman cain was the big winner at the florida straw poll. >> tonight peace winner with 986 votes, 37.1%, herman cain. (cheers) >> it wasn't even close. i mean, double the lead. let's bring in our political panelist, democratic strategist, the former advisor for president george w. bush. and a co-founder and chairman of american town.com, ted
burger. nice to see all of you. >> nice to be here. >> clayton: herman cain wins the florida straw poll and rick perry is in deep trouble, is that how he we see this. >> i don't know if rick perry is in trouble. had a horrible couple of days. the big winner is mitt romney, didn't compete and lost to rick perry, but perry competed hard for the poll and to defeat mitt romney by one percentage point, if i were mitt romney i would do the happy dance to the extent that mitt romney could do the happy dance these days. >> the spin from the perry camp, look, this is a big loss for mitt romney, 1 percentage point, a loss for mitt romney campaigning for five years, we only got in this thing five weeks ago. your response to that? >> i'm not a political strategist, as an american just watching, mitt romney didn't take much time on this.
the straw polls are more risk for a front runner than an opportunity. they're a great opportunity for underdogs so i think it's a great day for herman cain, deserves a pat on the back and an opportunity to celebrate. >> clayton: at the resonating? does he resonate with those tired of the spin? a lot of focus on the other candidates. herman cain won by double digits over rick perry. >> i think it's a fire point. a great day for herman. most americans aren't paying attention to the straw poll. 167 voters, went over 900 votes. >> i hear a lot of hedging though, and it's fascinating, because when michele bachmann comes out on top in iowa, everyone says look, front runner, herman cain wins by double digit numbers we say, i don't know that a lot of people are paying attention. >> the campaigns are good and the straw polls are good.
they're day-to-day and they change every time we have one. so, the last one today, not going to make sure we have a clear idea. they're going to come and go, and go up and down and i think that herman cain had a great performance last night and 37%, resonated with the florida voters and that's for today. we got a long way to go. >> aim geg to ask you about the woman in this race, the one that's in right now. they don't know what sarah palin is going to do. >> michele bachmann, 1% of the vote, can she he recover from this, to ted's point is it a big deal that she came in dead last? >> it's not hopeful to her, a narrative how she came in last and as i recall four years ago, rudy guiliani and hillary clinton that was going to be in 2007 this time, and so, can she come back? sure. do i think she's going to be the nom he knee? probably not. horrible mistake and verbal gaffes that keep screwing her up.
can she come back? sure. and i think the florida straw poll is basically irrelevant the same way the iowa straw poll. >> before we take a break, your thoughts on michele bachmann. >> i think she's lost a lot of steam. i think her headlines, dead last, not good at all. >> clayton: our political panel is going to stick around. president obama fund raising with a company that got more than 100 million dollars in stimulus money. is that a good idea with the solyndra scandal bubbling up there. pop corner, candy, soda and beer and soon you may be able to crack open a cold one at the movie. beer at the movies. ♪ . there's only one bottle left ! i've got to tell susie ! the vending machine on elm is almost empty. i'm on it, boss.

the famous governor killed in a plane crash. tom carnahan, a wind farmer for years, getting this money. down it's inappropriate. >> it's inappropriate and i disagree that it's used as a campaign tool. it's fundamentally wrong and it's inappropriate for them to do that and it's a conflict of interest. it's that simple. talking about a lot of money here. >> clayton: conflict of interest? >> of course the republicans in washington, everybody else, and john boehner money for oil companies and other republicans for that matter, campaign contributors passing legislation. this actually less after conflict than that. this is not a political decision it's made by the-- >> is it ultimately though, president obama can look at that and say we've got 100 million dollars to this company, maybe we shouldn't do a fundraiser for $25,000 a head. >> well, can john boehner, can john boehner or any republicans say, okay, we're
preserving the tax breaks for oil companies and we're not going to earn a dime from the oil companies? >> the bottom line, every time a teacher, a cop gives money to barack obama, that's a conflict because of the stimulus money. >> clayton: we all agree that money and politics is a huge problem. but politics is all about perception. >> that's correct. it doesn't look good. i'm not arguing that hasn't been done, but it doesn't look good. especially after the is solyndra-- i mean, it just doesn't look good. it doesn't look right and not going to get him any points. julie, the point that they're making together reflects what they're saying, both parties are trying to spin it a certain way. are the american people sick and tired of hearing this back and forth in washington about money? >> i think there's no question, they are. they're tired of bickering and the partnership and tired of people essentially arguing for their party instead of trying to do what's right for the
party. and that's what it's about and we see large numbers of americans gravitating to this message. >> thanks to my political panel, julie, and, thanks for waking up early. yesterday we told you, a man arrested with weapons at the airport. first take a look what he was trying take on board. >> homeless and hungry, a man turned his life around with a recipe for muffins, inspiring story. now i'm hungry. captain. unidentified object.

approached by a nonprofit to help them and found funding for them and they decided they need to do something else. we had were dressed up and i learned the need and we proceeded on with doing it our self. what we did, we bought a fannie mae foreclosed apartment complex, about a half a million dollars fixing it up, we had 14 four-plexes two bedrooms and we let homeless people live there as long as they will be be in job training, no alcohol, drugs and no outstanding warrants. >> dave: why did you think that cooking out of a mailbox would make for a great cookbook. >> it came up one night over dinner. >> several of us, roger wilder, folks on our board were having dinner and how did they live and literally bobby and people we have in our complex, lived in the woods. and you know, this is like a long boy scout trip, somewhere

to heat it on the fire before we have the muffins we see here. >> okay, takes about, once it's good and hot, about 45 minutes. it takes a while to cook with that. >> dave: that's brilliant stuff. >> keep moving it back and forth don't burn them, which i did bun a bunch. >> dave: trial and error, my friend. recipes you can find in mailbox muffins, link the information how to find. foxnews.com, bobby, william, thanks so much. what a great project. >> thanks, dave. so, from crossing your fingers to lifting your feet, it turns out americans have some pretty strange supersitions when it comes to flying. tell us yours at email@example.com and we'll share some the strangers. >> clayton: i have a strange, i pet the arm of the person next to me, no matter who it is. >> alisyn: that's creepy. >> clayton: and mitt romney third in the g.o.p. debate.

no one saw that coming. people assumed it would be rick perry or mitt romney, but it was herman cain by-- >> a landslide, really. numbers more than perry and romney combined and that just is stunning for most folks who on thursday, most of the delegates told our reporters, that they were voting for rick perry. they saw the debate thursday night and admitted that they weren't so impressed and changed their vote. i'm not stunned by the fact that mr. cain is very, very popular in florida. did you watch the debate? everything he said, standing ovation, is he a front runner or two man race? >> that's the question, how will the media take this on and the voters in florida take this on? let's listen to herman cain if you get to hear the crowd as enthusiastic as they are, take a listen. >> we need a bold solution in order to fix the problem. this is why, unlike all of my
competitors in this presidential primary race, i have devised a bold solution, rather than more of the same. here is what i would do. in order to boost this economy. it's called 9, 9, 9. >> clayton: there was a big 9, 9, 9 plan. >> alisyn: the plan for personal taxes and corporate taxes. and he he said the momentum is with me. and he said something really clever, what was it? >> go through the-- >> that's why i'm not running for president and here is what's so special, people that thought that rick perry had the momentum and not herman cain, he he spent money trying to win in florida and direct mail advertising and worked
activists and none of that ended up working. >> dave: the spin is fascinating, you won't find a word that says that herman cain is now a front runner for the nomination. here is how the rick perry campaign immediately spun this thing. yeah, congrats to herman cain, this is a real loss for mitt romney, campaigning in florida for five years and can't get any traction, rick perry has been campaigning for five weeks. although i would add a dot, dot, dot, and still can't get any traction. i'm afraid he may have pointed that out unintentionally. >> clayton: what's surprising well maybe not. herman cain wins and all the attention on michele bachmann. >> dave: over a month ago. >> clayton: unbelievable victory in iowa and that was a big deal in iowa. now in florida presumably just as big of a big deal there, herman cain wins and all the attention goes back to rick perry and mitt romney, didn't fare so well and two frontrunners didn't fare so well. >> alisyn: and people wonder when will people drop out.
1%, did that change her calculus in terms of how long, and what happens with rick perry. >> clayton: it's an interesting question, so many attention was placed on iowa and how well she did in iowa, then, wouldn't the same measure be true in florida, now that see came in dead last or is that not relevant. >> we'll give you one wick request word from business crystal with all due respect for cain, for some, that's voting for none of the above. and i'll ask him at 9:15. that appears to be many in the establishment. >> alisyn: meanwhile, he will be on at 9:15 and we look forward to seeing mr. cain. mitt romney and rick perry are still treating each other as their stiffest competition and going after each other, so, here is, i believe, romney-- >> staying focused on the white house. and continuing to rise above, that's the game plan. >> alisyn: let's listen to
what he just said. >> the president is unprepared for the kind of economy we have today. when he was recently inaugurated he went on the today show and he said, look, if i can't get this economy turned around in three years i'll be looking at a one term proposition. i'm here to collect on that. [applause] >> i don't think he's equipped for what's happening. i look at his jobs plan, and have you seen his jobs plan? he put his jobs plan out at the beginning, it sounded like, that sounds like it's-- he said i'm going to cut some taxes for employers, payroll taxes and people said, well, cutting taxes for employers, that would be a good thing. then a few days later, announced he's going to pay for that by raising taxes on employers. how dense does he think we are. >> clayton: meanwhile, rick perry continues to go after mitt romney. if you read the new york times, the attack lines are drawn. rick perry going off mitt romney may not be taking, and flip-flopping may not
necessarily be working. and here he is on the attack, let's listen. >> we don't need to select a nominee that will blur the lines between themselves and president obama. and let me share something with you, i will draw a sharp contrast between president obama and myself. i want to promise you one thing today, as the husband of a nurse, as the son-in-law of an old country doctor, as a governor of a state that understands what this obama care will do with this country, my first day in office will be to repeal as much of obama care as i can with a signing with an executive pen on an order. >> alisyn: and that's in michigan, they will. >> dave: they'll have their straw poll. and you can imagine mitt romney, his dad was governor there and has a lot of experience in the state of michigan. but who knows?
>> and a track record how well he did in 2008 against john mccain. >> alisyn: still a fluid situation. we have more news for you, a fox news alert. two americans among those killed in a tragic plane crash in nepal. carrying 19 people, it crashed while trying to land in heavy fog. all 19 were killed. the two americans have been identified as andrew wade and natalie milen, buddha airlines turbo prp plane went down in a village outside of kathmandu, it was thereafter a trip to mt. everest. two hikers in prison in iran have left oman and are on the way back to the u.s. they're expected sometime this afternoon. also on board that flight is shara shourd the third hiker released last year, grupt was detained in iran more than two years after accused of being spies. we told you about the saudi

built the inter-continental railroad. i know he believes in big government, government government can't build a train that goes across oceans. >> alisyn: sticking with these guys, romney and perry, people changed their vote in florida. why don't you think in terms of his style, his performance at the debate, he's done better? >> well, i mean, when you're becoming fodder for your inability to express yourself becomes fodder for "saturday night live" skits, you're in trouble. he has a bigger learning curve. mitt romney for five years, perry for five weeks. and herman cain, people are concerned about he can't make the case against romney care, he'll have a harder case against obama care next fall. >> clayton: the new york times shows the clear lines between the two camps and attacks on each other, romney versus perry. perry's target right now is to
try to paint mitt romney as a flip-flopper, for john mccain it worked well. they said the case it isn't working all he though you saw something in the debate on thursday night, that may hurt romney. >> they don't necessarily go to the candidates who is the most articulate. he's the candidates that doesn't say anything that appears in the opponent's campaign ad. when mitt romney said there are a lot of reasons not to elect me. you can see the campaign ad man starting to write that script. >> alisyn: sorry to interrupt. let's get that moment. >> i'm going to stand by my positions and i'm proud of them. there are a lot of reasons not it elect me, a lot of reasons not to elect others on the stage. >> alisyn: he's trying to be self-efacing, there are a lot of reasons not to elect me. democrats could season that. >> either rick perry or barack
obama can write that ad. and the announcer says, under mitt romney the massachusetts was third to the last. cut to mitt romney, a lot of reasons not to elect me. you can see the admen working on it. romney was obviously the more articulator debater and the only one who had a gaffe that end up in the opponent's campaign ad. >> in the end we're talking with rick perry and mitt romney, herman cain was number one. and will people sit back being back, oh it's it's just a straw poll it's a straw poll. i think that people are unhappy with romney and excited by rick perry and seeing him not prosecute the case against in the debate and see if it he can do it with president obama. they're expressing displeasure

employment experts say it is, but many smokers are crying foul. those are your headlines. >> thank you, alisyn camerota. >> you're welcome. let's check in with rick reichmuth and find out what's going on in the weather. >> dave: where is it ricky? he's outside. >> kind after nice day, if you don't want fall to end and clearly-- or summer to send, i should say, clearly alisyn doesn't, it's nice here, across the eastern seaboard, showers on and off. the temps waking up. 70's across the eastern seaboard and we have some really high temperatures we're going to talk about in a second. not the case across areas of minnesota, northern missouri right now as you're waking up, not that bad. take a look the at the forecast for today. this is how is shapes up, the eastern seaboard, kind of warm and muggy and feels a little like a nice summer day, tampa you're at 90 and we'll he see pretty significant rain the next couple of days across much of florida and coastal areas of carolinas, and the outer banks and tropical moisture pulled up by the upper level disturbance and
parked in around the shir area and there we'll see the heavy rain. take a look out west. first of all, texas you know you've been warm forever and feels like, pueblo, colorado, billings montana, 92 degrees, we're in fall where towards the end of september and we have some extremely warm temperatures out there. seattle, you're cooling down a little bit. 63 today and rain showers across northern california, and into the coastal areas of oregon and washington as well. fake a look at your temperatures tomorrow. we will drop the temps a little bit in towards the northern rockies and back into the upper 70's and still in the 80's around denver and the triple digits continue around much of texas. phoenix, a little bit of a break at 98. no worries, back above 100 for much of the coming week. >> dave: i'm sure they're relieved to hear that. >> clayton: so, there's a little piece in the detroit free press this morning, about the strange and multiple supersitions that apparently lots of passengers have when
they fly. >> dave: for example, a lot of people lift their feet. and lift the arm rest and people get nervous on the plane like meg ryan did on the big screen in french kiss. >> kate, what happened to your stone cottage, picture it now. >> okay. okay. ♪ i love paris in the springtime ♪ ♪ i love-- ♪ >> hello, hello, i think you gave me the wrong one. i don't love paris, i don't like the french and i don't really want to go on this trip. >> she's not alone in listening to music or singing, apparently lots of people, that's one of the rituals they do to make sure that the plane is going to land. >> clayton: tons of tweets and e-mails coming in on this. and some of those examples are this, as the the plane begins to take off. this individual rolls their finger in a circular pattern,
faster and faster. >> from michigan. >> my wife and they all collectively lift their feet as the plane is accelerating down the runway until it leaves the ground. >> dave: i can't disagree, it feels like it's lighter. >> alisyn: aerodynamic. helps to lift the plane. i left up on the arm rest to get the plane into the air and thinks it's a lever and pull it back. >> clayton: great tweets, some people walk down the gang plank and slap the bulk head they need to touch the metal. >> alisyn: i know, you said you pet whoever-- >> i have a real one. repeat a phrase, a little bit of a-- >> a mantra. >> clayton: i'll be like, everything's going to be fine, everything's going to be fine, repeat things like that in the first minute, the first minute
is the worst. >> dave: thank you, rainman. >> clayton: hey, i think something like this, everything's going to be fine, calmly. >> alisyn: what do you do. >> dave: nothing, i just fly. >> clayton: he's all over the place, by then he's had four bloody marys. >> dave: i drink, trying to handle it. >> alisyn: and that's another strategy. and helps us feel more in control, if we do all of these things, rituals, we feel when you're on a plane you're so out of control, these things make you feel as though you have a little control. >> clayton: here is somebody who has a music ritual. michael in michigan, i've never been on a plane that crashed while listening know bonny rait music, so why risk it. >> dave: who can argue that, bonny rait. >> clayton: strange rituals pouring in. maybe you're like dave and drink. email@example.com or ff weekend on twitter. >> dave: i've got to kids to handle. i'm handing out goodies and treats.

says all parents do regardless of what you say. . >> dave: that's right, our next guest says he can prove that theory. jeffrey is a senior editor at time magazine and the author of "the sibling effect" good morning to you, doc, fascinating. the research shows that all parents play favorites. >> research shows absolutely. the study that i cite. one of the studies i cite in the book shows that 70% of all favors and 60% of all mothers exhibit a favorite child. exhibit a preference. >> dave: they don't want to admit it. >> they don't admit it, they exhibit it and the remaining ones probably doing a better job. >> dave: how do they do this. >> clayton: if dave says i don't have a favorite for my children, i only sh one child so he's my favorite right now, but how do they exhibit this favortism behavior? >> you can see on the cover of time magazine has a favorite child with a giant piece of cake and two children with a smaller piece.
rarely that obvious, but see how much attention directed to child and how the fights are refereed, if you watch carefully you'll see a parent tilting to one child. >> alisyn: i have three children and i don't have, i don't believe that i have a favorite, but you're saying it's something sub conscious is happening. is there a common thread who the favorite usually is? >> absolutely. having kids is what we call in the story a reproductive narcissistic ac our primal imperative is to get our genes into the next generation and then to tilt toward the baby, who's going to have the best chance of getting the genes into the following generation. >> alisyn: meaning the one that looks most like us. >> that's a part of it. who is looks most like us, the fittest and strongest and parents with cross gender preference, what he sees in his daughter are characteristic in himself. i'm a businessman, she's got an mba. >> look at famous families.
the bush family, is there a favorite. george w. bush, jeb bush, neil bush. do the parents have a favorite. >> one thing i have stress, we have to be infrengs, even the famous families the accounts that come out of the family that jeb was the favorite which is the counter intuitive, because george, old heest, you would think to be the favorite. jeb seemed to be the one most focused and disciplined and george had wandering years there. but when jeb did not win his first gubernatorial race he sort of fell to the side in the cycle of presidential elections and george seemed readier in 2000. so it worked out that the oldest then became sort of the favorite in the family. >> you also say that the the kennedys are a good example of this, tell us how, and my question, is there some harm in having a favorite? >> there is -- the kennedys
are a very good example and a terribly tragic example. we see what happens when the favorite is no longer around. the next becomes what's called the functional first born and the mantle falls to that child. it's not a surprise that of the fr kennedy brothers who had the most behavioral problems it was teddy the youngest, the furthest from assuming the family mantle and you see that with prince wills and harry in london. >> and to alisyn's point, hey, i've got three kids, i certainly don't have a favorite. there are things when you have a first born that you say in the book, that that first child almost becomes like an industrial child. you go through the, i'm taking care of this child, but you're not evening tons of praise and love on that child. maybe the youngest gets more of the love i found fascinating. >> the youngest gets more of the love and the youngest acquires what are called lower power strategies and the cover of the book shows i'm the product of a four boy family and the youngest is the weakest in the playroom.
so, they develop charm, they develop charisma, they develop an intuitive ability to get inside somebody's head which is very important because if you're the weakest in the playroom you have to know if your older brother is going to slug you. >> alisyn: are we supposed to change if this we're parents? >> the most important thing is to try hard not to exhibit it. even when it's an open secret. my mother just turned 80 and insists bruce isn't a favorite, but everybody knows it. there's an act of love in keeping up the pretext of denial. >> and some people waving off camera. >> your kids are here. >> which is your favorite? >> i have no favorite, but i always szareks 95% of parents in the world have favorites and the other 5% ever lying and the only exception is my wife and me. >> alisyn: how convenient. >> dave: who is his favorite? oh! >> the little girls. >> jeffrey, great, it's fascinating and the book is
called the sibling effect. go out there and read it, jeffrey, great to have you here on the show. >> thank you for having me. >> alisyn: parts of the northeast are torn apart in the wake of hurricane irene and fema is just days away, maybe even tomorrow. run out of money to pay for disaster relief. is now the time for congress to threaten a government shutdown? congressman michael grimm is steaming mad about this. he's next. >> dave: he's one of our nation's bravest, so brave he was awarded the medal of iron. he requested two things, a beer with the president and only one of those will come true and there's a reason why.

reprehensible. let's be clear, there was a bipartisan agreement, between the republicans and democrats in the house and harry reid was part of the negotiations and they knew it. now at the last minute the democrats just pulled away, in an effort to gain some type of political gain, it's terrible. >> alisyn: the democrats say it's not their fault. the democrats say you guys, the republicans are playing partisan politics because never before, they say, historically is any disaster relief money ever tied to an offset somewhere else. historically, you give victims of disasters money and you don't say, well, we should cut green jobs technology somewhere else? >> well, here is the proof. let's roll back the tapes, on the floor of the house, steny hoyer stood up pan got into a colloquy with eric cantor said he was going to vote for the bill. less than a week later nancy pelosi found out the democrats didn't have enough votes on their own and hoyer said i can't vote for it. it's nothing, but politics and
not telling the american people the truth and it's reprehensible. >> would you be willing to vote for it if it was billions of dollars given to victims without an offset somewhere else. >> i said early on i didn't want to bicker about the offsets to make sure those that needed the aid. however, it's responsible if we found an offset in time to do so. >> alisyn: democrats don't like that offset. >> i don't like the fact that we have 14.3 trillion dollars of debt. >> alisyn: they don't want this tied to the budget battle. they just want the victims to get the money. >> no, i don't, they already agreed to this prior to nancy pelosi starting to play politics. again, on the floor of the house, roll back the tape. it's there. a colloquy between their whip. and-- >> you're saying they agreed before the-- >>. >> that's right. >> alisyn: nancy pelosi got involved, we funded two wars
during george w. bush that had offset. >> how that relevant now? although we didn't want to hold this up. we did find some. not all of it is offset. we found some offset and i think that's the responsible thing to do. >> alisyn: are the victims in joplin-- >> how with staten island and brooklyn. >> alisyn: how about texas wildfires, are they going to have assistance? >> if the senate does the right thing and stops playing politics, it will. it doubles what the president had for emergency assistance, we increased the the number and general, truly bipartisan effort, this is something that steny hoyer was a part of from the beginning and harry reid knew was going on and these are the numbers we agreed to and nothing, but a political ploy by the democrats to try to make the republicans look unreasonable. >> alisyn: you don't know if the victims will have assistance or fema will run out of money. are you staying in house to get this done?
>> we have, it's now in the senate-- >> they're going to toss it back to you, that's the plan? >> we have to see. if they're responsible and care about the victims, this is a bipartisan effort. everyone agreed to it. don't be fooled by anything, the rhetoric is not true. this is politics, and they're trying to gain a political gain, it's terrible. >> alisyn: it is terrible. congressman michael grimm. thank you to are perspective. good luck on the run. >> going to immediate it. >> alisyn: the president says stop whining, his jobs plan will get americans back to work. if the numbers add up. why the economist the president himself uses say no, the numbers don't add up. and you've seen them set up as wall street fat cats, protesting rain or shine, too bad the latest demonstration didn't go as planned. so who ordered the cereal that can help lower olesterol and who ordered the yummy cereal?

"fox & friends" our three begins right now. ♪ >> good morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. there was an upset yesterday
in politics. the straw poll in florida did not go as planned. people assumed that the winner would be mitt romney or governor rick perry and that's not what happened. herman cain was the big winner. >> clayton: take a look. at planned, i think a lot of people are wondering herman cain would do well among the activists down there who were coming out, over 2000 of them who voted in this thing, nearly 2-1 over mitt romney and rick perry. >> isn't it amazing,herman had more than romney and perry combined and the two frontrunners, so many questions, does this change the race for the g.o.p. nomination, and is it simply a one-off? look, bill crystal said in the weekly standard last night with all due respect, most people voting for herman cain are voting for none of the above in his opinion. so it's a very interesting-- >> he's also the one. >> he was evaluated. >> and talking about chris christie in all of this and he
may be the vote that no one else-- >> i'm not sure that's fair to herman cain, the people who voted in florida yesterday said they were wowed by his charisma. and here is what herman cain said? >> we need a bold solution in order to fix the problem. this is why, unlike all of my competitors in this presidential primary race, i have devised a bold solution, rather than more of the same. here is what i would do in order to boost this economy. it's called 999. >> clayton: and rick perry's camp almost immediately coming out and spinning it in their favor. mark miner, the press guy for rick perry said that romney's been campaigning for the past five years and he said this,
congrats to herman cain, but this is a loss to mitt romney, he's been campaigning in florida for five years and can't get traction and rick perry for five weeks. >> and mitt romney did not compete for the straw poll and did not pay to get in. he did not campaign a lot for the straw moll poll. and the delegates that voted, settings delegates, one went on to say i don't think that herman cain will be the nominee, but i vote ford him, i think it sends a message that i hope will be embraced. they're not voting for the fwie they think will be the nominee and interpreted for the next days. >> clayton: that's a great point. a question we asked earlier, a major issue for a lot of the delegates in florida that has to deal with illegal immigration. i considered perry until he said that we don't have a heart. we can get that liberal guilt trip stuff from someone else.
>> alisyn: it was the debate performance, not just the performance, but the substance that changed people's minds and michele bachmann dead last, her momentum from weeks ago, seems to have ended and she got just 1% of the straw poll. what does it mean for her? who knows if she will-- >> tim pawlenty dropped out. >> alisyn: we'll see if she sees this as a sign to get out of the the race. >> dave: what does it mean for the nomination. the governor of florida said on multiple occasions including here on saturday. the winner of the straw poll wins the g.o.p. nomination, listen. >> if history repeats itself. the ronald reagan won in 1979. george w as you said, george hw in '87 and bob dole, we had a big turnout. we've got over i think, 3500 delegates. they're activists in the states, the grass roots,
they're going to get out the vote. so, today is a very important day to do well here. >> you know as well as i do, i lived in florida-- >> okay, he he said yesterday it was a bellwether and here is what he said after the results came in. you tell us if you think he's backtracking. today's results reinforce the crucial role florida's primary will play in the selection of our nominee and show that no candidate can take florida for granted a challenging primary between our candidates will serve our state and nation well preparing to defeat president obama in 2012. >> dave: ran away, backtrack? he ran away full speed. >> clayton: presumably he would have said i'm sticking by my guns, herman cain will be the party's nom we'll see in the coming months. >> dave: and in 2007 who led the polls for the republicans. >> alisyn: guiliani. and fred tomorrhompson.
a lot of time. >> alisyn: sure is. president obama is heading out west, to three crucial states, california, washington state and colorado, a lot of fund raising with big dollars. >> clayton: seven fundraisers, the home of a former microsoft executive and dinners there will sit in on the brunch. 100 people can show up. it's going to cost you over $35,000 per couple just to go to that one and towards los angeles, to the coo of facebook, it will cost $35,000 a person to get in. >> alisyn: those are some expensive muffins. >> dave: good bloody marys. >> alisyn: chump change. >> dave: this is 16,000 dollars. this could make a big, big message for the president and clearly he's going to strike a different ton when he swings out west. at least if you listen to what he said to the congressional black caucus on saturday, stop whining.
>> i expect all of you to march with my take off the bedroom slippers and put on your marching shoes, shake it off. stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying, we are going to press on. we've got work to do cbc. >> clayton: referring of course to the jobs plan. that's what he wants and hitting home with the the congressional black caucus, get behind me because i've got a jobs plan. >> alisyn: it sounded like he was talking directly to maxine waters, who said i support the president, but we're getting tired. tired of the lack of results, she's saying, in her community, there's such high unemployment and he was saying, shake it off, stop complaining, get out of your bedroom slippers. >> dave: 17% unemployment rate for the african-american community. i'm sure some people don't care who he was talking to what they don't want to hear the president to tell them to stop complaining. can't get a job. >> clayton: and back and forth
with congress as well and republicans and democrats. the economists saying the numbers don't add up on the president's jobs plans because unemployment won't come down for at least three years. mark zandi, moody's, all this have was tied to it. and the went to the white house blog when the job plans came out. the first comment on the top of the page, mark zani, unemployment will drop a point. gdp, 2%, but now he's, maybe like governor scott, he's tack tracking. >> alisyn: and june 2013, certainly 2014, the plan is a drag on the economy because the stimulus starts fading away. so by 2015. the economy is it in the same place as now as if there were no jobs package. in other words, it's a temporary fix. >> dave: hardly a ringing endorsement of these new 447 billion dollars jobs bill. now, what will the president use out there.
it may be a tougher sell now. >> alisyn: let's get to your headlines and tell you what else is it happening at this hour. we have breaking news for you, two americans are among the dead after a tourist plane slams into the ground in nepal. all 19 people on board were killed and two americans are identified as andrew wade and natalie milen, the plane was trying to land in heavy fog, went down in a village near kathmandu, returning from a sightseeing tour of mt. everest. and it's homeward bound for the three american hikers, once held in had an iranian prison. they're set to arrive back on u.s. soil this afternoon. the group was detained in iran more than two years after being accused of spying. shourd was released last year for medical reasons. and police are cracking down on the occupied wall street protesters here in new york city. >> freedom, freedom, freedom! >> freedom from capitalism? they arrested at least 80
people during the 8th straight day of demonstrations and the officers tried to corral people who were being unruly with orange plastic he netting. this video here also shows one of them pepper sprayed and the police say the reason they used force, because of protesters disorderly conduct. certainly more people there than we've seen previously. how can anyone forget marine sergeant dakota meyer. one of our bravest, storming into enemy territory to bring back the bodies much his fallen brothers. when the white house learned of sergeant meyer's bravery and commitment made his first wish come true. that was a beer and conversation with president obama. dakotas second term to become a new york city firefighter may never come true. accord to go a firefighter advocacy group, meyer won't be allowed to take the firefighters exam because he filed the paper work too late. we're not talking days late. his papers were a few hours
late. and you think, he might be able to fix that clerical error. >> alisyn: you could overlook a couple of hours. >> clayton: sergeant meyer required an exception to that rule, but at last check he hadn't heard back. >> alisyn: let's-- >> how often can you apply. >> miss it had until the next year. >> yeah. >> weird. >> all right, guys, we're going 0 get some rain. we had so much because of the flooding across the northeast and take a look where the rain is going to fall. in florida, rain, three or four inches especially across south florida. coastal georgia and carolinas, and wisconsin into michigan and down around parts of kentucky and tennessee. the northeast areas of new york, and pennsylvania, not getting any of this rain. it doesn't look like over the next couple of days, that's good news and we'll see the chances for scattered showers, this is that disturbance that kind of stuck there.
and continuing to rotate and continuing to bring all of this moisture in around parts of indiana and towards kentucky. coastal areas will see a little bit of rain and scattered showers. it's going to be muggy and cloudy for the next couple of days, across the east. big rain moving into across the pacific northwest, it's going to drop temperatures down a lot. the tropics, very, very active right now. hurricane hillary, it's going to move in and affect parts of the baja peninsula and not worried about the stuff in the bahamas. and felipe. a 45 mile per hour storm, none of those looks like they'll be affecting the u.s., which is good news. back to you. >> alisyn: thank you. all right, coming up, president obama says his jobs plan will put african-americans back to work and the next guest said that black voters should think twice before believing him. he did vote for the president in 2008. and he comes from a long line of civil rights activists and now he's not happy with the president. we'll talk to eric in minutes.

know? i think that reverend dr. martin luther king, jr. had it right before he was slain, he was working on the poor people's campaign and he he wanted an economic bill of rights, which we do need. we need to fulfill that, that's king's true dream. with an economic bill of rights, what he was saying was that we owe it to the poor to do our best to transform this nation into a compassionate nation. >> alisyn: why don't you think that president obama is saying the right thing? >> i don't think that the president is leading from a place of compassion? i think he's leading from a place of fear right now. i don't really understand what is going on. i mean, we actually do need to fulfill the tenants of the poor people's campaigns, we need not only jobs, but we need some way to deal with the income stabilization, we need some way to deal with affordable housing and investments in health care and education. the president is in a unique place and i think he's failing himself truly. and i think, race has
something to do with this. i think you know, to say that one in three african-americans are impoverished gives the president more than just pause. had this been a white president and one in three white americans were in poverty we would have an economic revolution, we'd have 100 million people in poverty. >> alisyn: on your blog you take issue with blacks who sort of blindly support the president. >> sure. >> alisyn: you think that they, too, should wake up. let me read what you said there. i'm embarrassed my brothers and sisters are so transparent in their support of obama, given that blacks have gotten nothing from this administration showing that kind of sport brings memories of jonestown. why, black people, do you think so little of yourself your own self-interest doesn't matter. those are strong words, eric. >> those are strong words i'm sorry, i was raised to speak truth to power. and-- >> we should mention you're the son of legendary congressman, anti-apart tide
activist you've been around this all your life. >> i have he i've been around this, had my dad still been in congress, i would have been in the audience when president obama told us to stop whining. >> alisyn: talking about the black congressional caucus, he he said stop your whining, stop your complaining, take off your slippers and get more change. >> i don't understand we seem to be existing in two separate worlds. who was he talking to, about three different people? this sort of a conspiracy of silence. we as black people are emotionally invested in this man and i'll always love him for his courage, but we have to assert our citizenship at all costs. and that means we have to speak truth to power, even when power looks like us. >> alisyn: so you're saying that most progressives or blacks are not comfortable speaking out, as you are right now. >> not at all. i am a progressive and i'm one of the few that's actually talking. we have more people on the congressional black caucus than we ever had. you would never know it. they really have been silent.
there's been a conspiracy of silence, this to say that our values are not valid? i think what's happening we're in a protective mode and want to protect this brother because frankly emotionally we're invested in him and happy. and history will never change that, but our values are meaningful and we have to speak truth to this president. >> alisyn: i get it. if you want to hear more from eric, go to his address and there's provocative. >> you can follow me on twitter. >> alisyn: i will, thank you for coming in and talking. >> thank you. >> alisyn: and president obama wants israel and palestine to talk peace, but a brand new report says's giving one side a couple of bombs to boot. you've got to hear this. your. carol. fiber makes me sad. oh common. and how can you talk to me about fiber while you are eating a candy bar? you enjoy that. i am.

jewish calendar, recall in 1973 they launched a war on yom kippur, the holeiest day of the jewish year, but i think more important than the specifics of the timing, are the specifics of the action, that is to go to the u.n. to try to get that which they are unwilling or unable to do at the negotiating table, is to try to make an end run around the sort of commitment that israel has asked again and again from the palestinian people. >> clayton: let's specifically play this sound bite from mahmoud abbas asking for statehood and we'll hear the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu responding. >> right. >> and this policy is impossible for the repeated failure of successive international attempts for the peace process. >> the truth is that israel wants peace with a palestinian state, but the palestinians
want a state without peace. and the truth is, you shouldn't let that happen. >> the israeli ambassador to the united states, michael orrin writing in the wall street journal, until palestine recognizes the state of israel, there's no discussion to be had. >> well, remember, you have two states in palestine or two governments, rather, in palestine. gaza run by hamas which explicitly calls for the destruction of israel and the west bank run by the pa which says it will recognize israel, but not as a jewish state. imagine if you have a dispute with somebody, are you willing to sit down with them before they recognize who you are? it seems to me that a pre recognizance requisite. i acknowledge you have a right to exist. to ask israel to give up its attempts to control that
territory without allowing-- without asking the palestinians to ensure that they'll treat israel as an equal partner in the peace, that's not only realistic, but it's dangerous. >> clayton: rabbi there's been criticism heaped on the obama administration in this regard. yesterday ambassador bolten saying we knew about this, we knew that president abbas was going to do this, we knew this a year ago. why did it have to come to this, do you agree with those sentiments? >> i think that it was a very difficult thing to head off in the sense that there was an internal drive in the palestinian authority to do this and also, the world endorsed it. whether more effective diplomatic means could have been to hold it off, i'm not sure that anybody really knows. what i am certain of is that this increases the international pressure on israel in a way that encourages israel to make concessions that right now it
can't afford. i mean, 2008, olmert effectedly offered the palestinian people virtually everything they're asking for except the promise to flood israel with palestinians that would effectively end israel as an israel state. >> clayton: all they asked for was the israel state on their part. >> recognition and peace, that's our demand. recognition and peace. >> clayton: rabbi, great to see you this morning and great expertise sharing it with our audience this morning. we appreciate it. coming up here on the show, have you seen this video yet? kids fighting in cages? our next guest says there's a purpose here that most parents are missing. why fighting isn't such a bad thing, but cage fighting eight year olds? how about sitting down for a dinner with a dictator? apparently iranian president mammoud ahmadnejad has to buy his friends in the united

>> welcome back, folks, this video from the u.k. showing an eight-year-old boy and his nine-year-old opponent in an organized cage fight. as you can imagine, it's sparking some international outrage, critics call it barbaric, and too violent for kids, but there are people defending the practice. one of those is the editor of mma junky.com. good morning to you, dan. thanks so much for being here. that video, how do you defend it? >> i don't defend that, the concept of kids fighting mma.
unfortunately what we're seeing in the video isn't cage fighting, it's grappling and unfortunately they picked a very, very bad venue, an adult venue. it's something that, you know, if you saw in an open mat and usual environment it wouldn't be nearly as controversial, buyou had a knucklehead promoter put these kids in what otherwise was a night of mma fights and i think that's where the problem is. >> dave: okay, so what we're seeing there, you say, is not mixed martial arts and not what you support young kids doing. what's the difference? >> right. submission wrestling, taking out kicks and punches, elbows the stuff that can create damage. what we're seeing is jujitsu, you have jujitsu wrestling going on all over the country every weekend and it's not a big deal because it doesn't incorporate the striking
elements. and this, the kids we're seeing on the video weren't taking part in that striking. >> dave: according to legal experts in the u.k., this is actually, the video you're seeing is actually legal where they are doing this, the venue, it is allowed by law there. if this were here in the united states and, say, they had padding on it, had all of their protective gear on. is that something you would support? >> i don't think so. i mean, first of all, what they're doing, the type of grappling they're doing, any type of equipment would actually just make it more dangerous. but, you know, luckily, here in the united states, the regulations much, much, much more tighter. we, you know, 45 states now sanction the sport and just about every one of them is going to require that you be 18 years of age or older to participate in it. but like i said, this is grappling, jujitsu and we see at that all over the country on any given weekend everywhere.
>> dave: mixed martial arts, what is a good age to start allowing your kids to do it? >> well, i think you can start learning the fundamentals like wrestling jujitsu as young as four's a problem with that. i think most responsible gyms and parents and trainers, aren't going to allow to striking, until you're 14, 15, 16. i think compared to other sports you see an injury rate that's much, much lower with wrestling and jujitsu because they wait so long to incorporate that striking into the training. >> dave: you know, i had heard from a former marine who said stop the wussif ication of america. and check out dan on mmajunky.com. dan, thanks. >> thank you. >> dave: still ahead, some christians say taxing the

in order to boost this economy. it is called "nine-nine-nine." [cheers and applause]. >> alisyn: mention what that is, that is the tax plan, basically, flat tax, basically, for corporate taxes, and personal taxes at 9% and what is interesting, is florida does it differently than iowa does, the straw poll and use delegates, and the delegates were interviewed afterwards, because, rick perry it had been assumed that he was going to win, or mitt romney. and, afterwards they said watching rick perry's performance in the debate, this week, changed their minds. changed their vote. and, they were impressed with herman cain and his message and his charisma. >> clayton: it came down to immigration, his comments, his immigration comments and florida has to deal with illegal immigration and fox spoke to a
number of people, foxnews.com and delegates went on the record saying immigration was the issue. >> dave: but does it change the dynamics of the race? it has been said this is a two-horse race between rick perry and mitt romney, does it change things? are those two still the front-runners? we're going to ask him about all of this in the a few minutes. look, these people paid $175 each to vote in this straw poll. i'm not saying what bill kristol is saying, which, with all due respect, some degree, voting for herman cain is voting for none of the above and i'm not saying that. but is he a front-runner? i think far from it. >> alisyn: he has momentum and he said the herman cain train is picking up speed and it is interesting, to get back to the perry-mitt romney debate. perry spent money in florida, trying to win this and he was viin this and worked with activists and, the fact that he didn't win, here's what his press
secretary says about this: congratulations to herman cain, but, this is a real loss for mitt romney. he has been campaigning in florida for five years and can't get any traction and rick perry has been campaigning for five weeks, trying to downplay the investment rick perry had in florida. >> clayton: a big investment by the bachmann camp in ames, iowa, the straw poll, just over a month ago and now how the mighty have fallen, 1% dead last in the straw poll results, a stunner and there's a lot of question, floating in the blogosphere and other places will it cause michelle bachmann to drop out. >> dave: and perhaps another question for mr. cain, what has he learned, how quickly fortunes change and what is the take away and mitt romney continues to stay consistent on his message and he's not doing a lot of hitting back against his g.o.p. candidate opponents in the g.o.p. race and he's staying
focused on the president. >> the president is unprepared for the kind of economy we have today. when he was recently inaugurated he went on "the today show." and he said, look if i can't get this economy turned around in three years i'll be looking at a one-term proposition. i'm here to collect on that. [cheers and applause]. >> i don't think he's equipped for what is happening. i look at his jobs plan, have you seen it? he put his jobs plan out the beginning and sounded like, well, he said, i'm going to cut the taxes for employers, and payroll taxes and people said, well, cutting taxes for employers, that would be a good thing and a few days later announced he'd pay for that by raising taxes on employers. how dense does he think we are? >> clayton: meanwhile, governor rick perry continues to use the name mitt romney almost in every appearance he's at. it is interesting. and he's trying to paint mitt romney as a bit of a flip-flopper, a waffler and some saying it is not necessarily
taking hold but he's also going after him and continues to go after president obama, take a listen: >> we don't need to select a nominee that will blur the lines between themselves and president obama. and let me share something with you. i will draw a sharp contrast between president obama and myself. i wanted to promise you one thing today: as the husband of a nurse, as the son-in-law of an old country doctor, and as a governor of a state, that understands what this obamacare will do with this country, my first day in office, will be to repeal as much of obamacare as i can, with a signing of my pen on an executive order.

>> thank you, the reason is that the establishment still doesn't get it. first of all, the takeaway from florida that we took away was, number one, the citizen movement is more powerful than the establishment wants to give it credit for. so, yes, they keep treati me like the rodney dangerfield of the primary contest. secondly, message is more important than money. because i don't have a gajillion dollars and a war chest of a perry or romney they underplay the fact that my message is resonating and my message of solutions, not just talking about the problems. in the past -- >> is the message that the g.o.p. field is not satisfying the voters? >> no. the message i am putting out there is, here's how we boost this economy. here's what we do about social security. here's what we do about immigration. we all know what the problems are. and all the candidates keep
talking about the problems and i don't care what you call social security. i put a proposal out there called the personal retirement account system and they talk about the fact that the economy stalled. yes, it is, that is why i put out a solution. my 9-9-9 plan. the fact that i'm talking about specific solutions, to solve these problems, is what is resonating with people, and, the voters, the people out in the field, were saying, we want to send a message in washington, d.c., the establishment is not going to make the call, the people are going to make the call and that is what you saw in the florida straw poll yesterday. >> dave: but it is interesting, the message coming out, the -- the perry camp, for example, they say, congratulations to herman cain, but, this is really a loss for mitt romney, he has been campaigning in florida, five years and cannot get traction and rick perry has been there five weeks and i can go on and on and i mentioned what bill kristol said. rick scott who said the winner
the straw poll will win the nomination and he ran away from that saying it represents a challenging primary between our republican candidates and why isn't anyone saying you are a serious contender? and are you? >> i am a serious contender because of the people. look, the iowa straw poll, you could stack the deck and practically buy that. several people tried to do it and now you see what happens, with all due respect, representative michelle bachmann, you know, her star has fallen because, it was temporary. the difference is in florida, these were delegates making the calls, and they were making the calls, based upon who they saw as the person with the most substance in that message. that is why i believe that i'm resonating. and, the establishment and all of these other people, sooner o later, will have to get out of denial and recognize that my message is what is resonating with the people... who will cast the votes.
>> dave: why isn't it resonating in the polls? >> well the reason it's not resonating in the lls yet is because my name i.d. has only been up to 50% so far. i believe that after yesterday, and the debate last week, i expect my name i.d. to go up even more and as my name i.d. goes up people will take a closer look at my message and they've had a huge advantage in terms of name i.d. and huge advantage in terms of some people in the media trying to turn it into a two-man race. when you have your name plastered all over the media, you know, day after day after day, your name i.d. goes up. they didn't talk about herman cain and now they'll have to talk about him. as my name i.d. goes up, they are going to compare cain, versus more of the same. cain versus more of the same. it is what is coming through and that is what you saw, in florida. they prefer cain not more of the same. >> dave: well, they are talking
about you now, for sure and talking about this. from "saturday night live," last night, i don't know if you saw the spoof of yourself. let me show you what they did and getter reaction. >> there's no better model for the federal government than that of a pizza place. pizza doesn't come to your door, unless you ask foyr it and when you ask for it, pizza is there in 10 minutes, if you order it, pizza will come, and pizza will most definitely come! and, if you vote for me, i promise you that i will deliver! [applause]. >> dave: what do you think? >> i think it is great! i'm going to use that in my next debate! if you vote for me, america i will deliver. that is what people are hearing. i loved it! >> dave: he's a little bigger than you, but, very entertaining. >> yes. >> dave: herman cain, thanks as always for joining us, the next debate is october 11th, and we look forward to seeing the "snl"
version inserted there. thanks for joining us and best of luck. >> my pleasure, thanks, dave. >> dave: coming up, should christians want to pay more taxes because that is what jesus would do? we'll ask father jonathan morris, who is coming down the hall, and, want a job? you better quit smoking. company is telling employees this kick the habit or hit the road. is that fair? as luxury s.u.v.s, it helps to have the quality and craftsmanship of your leather interior test better than the lexus rx 350. it's also helpful to set your "select terrain" dial to "sand." ♪ with $500 bonus cash during the jeep celebration event,

get a job. and so it is good we are having this discussion but, simplistic, simplistic arguments like the one that you referred to, by susan brooks and the "washington post," saying, the christian thing to do in tough times is for the government to step in, increase in size and give more money out to the poor, 46 million now under the poverty level in our country, those simplistic argument do more damage to the bigger picture and the goal of getting jobs. living wages, which is what we should be working for. >> alisyn: we had mike huckabee on yesterday and he said basically if christians were doing their part, tithing, giving 10% of their salaries to the church, we wouldn't need any government programs, let's listen to what he said: >> christians would give a dime out of each dollar they earn and faithfully practice tithing we would eliminate the need for all government welfare programs, the reason we have 50 cents out of a
dollar take out in taxes is largely because the people who claim to be christian don't give a dime out of the dollar to support widows and the elderly and to support poor people and help them. >> alisyn: so it's not like the government is doing what people have stopped doing. >> but, the problem here is, the suggestion that the government is the one that is in the best position to be able to take care of our neighbor and take care of the widows and the poor and the article in the "washington post" was critical of any conservative fiscal person like o'neill, like for example, speaker boehner, i'm sorry. not o'neill, paul ryan, irish, you know? suggesting that the early christian community was socialist. because they shared everything. and, therefore suggesting that the more christian thing to do would be for us to give more money to the government, the difference here, is that it is -- in early christian community,
it was individuals sharing with individuals. that is a big difference, than the government saying you have more, we'll take more and hand it out an distribute it according to our beliefs. >> clayton: how do you, off of what alisyn asked and take it a step further, how do you encourage this type of giving, if government isn't the answer... >> alisyn: and people aren't giving. >> dave: how do you encourage them? >> first of all, i -- i preach jesus christ and don't give economic sushgsz but, yes, i talk about the need for being a good neighbor. and, unfortunately, when there is a tough situation like this, like we have today, an economic situation, and there is high taxes, it is hard to say, give 10%. that is very hard to say. i think we need that -- all of us to come together and to say, we need to fix structural problems with in our government now, and, really make sure we are creating living wages.
so that people can have the dignity of work. and not suggest, hey, just give more money to the government. >> alisyn: or make sure you are doing the most you can for your neighbor. as well, father john, great to see you. >> clayton: coming up here on the show, want jobs? the president telling the congressional black caucus, to stop whining, is he trying to fire them up? get stuff done or just campaigning? we report, you decide. >> alisyn: and would you be this man's best friend? if he paid you? iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad trying to buy american buddies and will even take you out to dinner, he's that nice. >> clayton: and, a soldier feared the worst when his best friend went missing and the sherry has a happy ending and is coming up next. there's only one bottle left !

heavy hitters' homes including the chief operating officer of facebook, cheryl sandburg and the cost of admission for the event at her place, $35,03 $35, percent -- $35,800 per person. >> dave: who do you serve. >> clayton: and one $35,000 a couple, the ceo of microsoft, $35,000 a couple. >> dave: there ain't no bloody mary that good, at least $8 million he'll raise and will he take the feisty tone out west with him? because the president clearly striking a different chord, the congressional black caucus on saturday. listen to how he told them to stop whining. >> president barack obama: i expect all of you... take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes.
shake it off. symptom complaining. stop grumbling, stop crying. we are going to press on. we have got work to do. cbc... >> alisyn: he's using civil rights terminology, march on, march with me, take off your bedroom slip,and put on your marching shoes, in response to something that, for instance, representative maxine waters said recently, where she said we are still supportive of the president, but we're getting tired and he is trying to rally their support, saying, now is no time to be tired, stop your complaining, let's march on. >> clayton: it wasn't just her. there were a number of other members of the congressional black caucus who were critical of the president. let us know what you think of the president's western money tour, and now, we have headlines. >> alisyn: let's get to those, secret details emerging on the relationship between president obama and israel. an exclusive report in "newsweek," says while the president was publicly urging israel to make concessions, over palestinian settlements, he
secretly authorized the sale of 5 a bunker buster bombs to the israelis shortly after taking office and the israelis could use the penetrating bombs to attack iranian nuclear sites in the need arises. and, a memorial will be held in reno, nevada honoring the 11 people killed in that tragic plane crash, at the national air races, on september 16th. the city plans to dedicate a tree to the victims as well as hold a candlelight vigil for the 70 other people, seriously injured in that accident. if you smock, don't even bother applying for a job at one of the largest health care companies, in texas. the baylor health care system says it will no longer higher smokes smokers and says they drive up health care costs, and by millions of dollars each year, and, guess what? employment experts say that this is all legal, many smokers, though, are crying foul. it was a tough journey and seymour the dog finally reunited with his owner, army specialist ryan rivera was away training

to have dinner with him, this week, tuesday night, and so far has not had any takers yet. it was interesting, though, because, the one thing, just one-on-one, because, now, if there is an interpreter there... >> alisyn: you need one. >> clayton: that would be interesting to have the interpreter there. >> dave: they say this is no strange occasion, he has been doing it for quite some time, mahmoud ahmadinejad, for years, at his u.n. visits and it happens all over the world and they say, the defenders of the dictator, that it goes back to the iranian revolution and did that when they paid some of the workers to come have lunch and go to demonstrations, and a lot of the people are saying, even no to the $1500, because they don't want to be associated with him, but, very cleaver excuses are required when you want to get out of that lunch. >> clayton: how do you get out of that, blame it on your kids, or... i got the kid. >> dave: kids are sick. >> clayton: mahmoud, i can't meet you for dinner, i've got the kids. >> alisyn: single ladies out

>> clayton: welcome back. look at that number. $120 million, of your taxpayer money, going to dead people. we can't make the story up. a new report out this morning, shows just how much of your cash went to dead federal workers, last year alone. and that is the tip of the iceberg, leslie page, a media director for citizens against government waste and joins us this morning, nice to see you this morning. >> good morning, how are you? >> clayton: well, it is hard to believe, though, the number, $120 million, as we said that is the tip of the iceberg and it gets worse in that report, $601 million paid out over five years, to people who were dead. how does it happen? >> well, you have heard cradle-to-grave, being taken care of from cradle to grave, and to beyond grave and it happens because the government is so huge and oversight is not a huge incentive to track who is
dead and who is alive and a government putting out $2.3 trillion in outlace ys and, the are interested in spending, not overseeing or getting back or clawing back. >> clayton: this is amazing, in '08, it finally stopped but a son was receiving death benefits, his father passed away 37 years before that. and, he was receiving his father's death benefits for 37 years and it took us that long to stop it? >> correct. he got something over $500,000, in that time period and they didn't figure it out until after the son had died. and, that gives you some idea. here's the bigger number and i feel these stories about dead people getting checks or incarcerated people getting checks, you have seen that before, has a lot to do with not being able to really track eligibility for government programs among other issues and the really big number is $125 billion. >> clayton: what is that number. >> that is the number of improper payments that this
government estimates that we put out there, in taxpayer money, every, single year to people who are not eligible for the money, either fraud, missed payments, lack of documentation and is basically $125 billion and that is not including several agencies that are not even reporting their improper payments. >> clayton: when you hear congress arguing, i like to remind our audience, they have a 10% approval rating now... when you hear congress and the president arguing we can't cut anymore money out of the federal budget and cannot figure this out, what do you think when you hear those kinds of comments? >> i can barely take it seriously and i don't think anyone else should take it seriously, either, the truth is we can squeeze so much more waste out of this federal government, when you look at the fact that medicare and medicaid alone accounts for almost half of that $125 billion, a year. and when you hear speaker pelosi saying we cannot touch medicare, it is sacrosanct, no changes, you wonder, you know, if she's on planet pelosi.
what is she thinking of? this is a huge amount of money and you could actually fund other agencies with that money. >> clayton: a great... and many people are listening to that and one person mentioned that a number of times, newt gingrich, saying all of the fraud, waste, abuse in our system we could pay for a lot of programs and i don't know how many people are listening, leslie paige, with citizens against government waste, thanks for joining us. >> glad to be here, thanks. >> clayton: thanks, coming up, one of our nation's heros thrown out of college because of a disability and wait until you hear the story behind why. he's speaking to us, next. ♪ don't you cry ♪ soon the sun ♪ is going to shine ♪ [ male announcer ] toyota presents the prius family. ♪ walk if i want, talk if i want ♪ [ male announcer ] there's the original one... the bigger one... the smaller one... and the one that plugs in. they're all a little different,

neurologists feel i don't need an aide because i'm completely coherent. the back spasms are startling to see. they look like i'm having an epileptic seizure but i'm completely coherent. i usually joke around with people. the points of an aide is from what metro is telling me, is to escort me out of class and let everybody in the hallway know that i'm fine and not to call 911. which i'm completely able to do myself. >> alisyn: i've got you. okay. so michael, why have you taken up brandon's case? >> well, i think this raises a larger question, and that is, are colleges and universities prepared to handle the influx of student veterans that are going to be attending higher education institutions. with the post 9/11 gi bill an
return to service members from iraq an afghanistan, what type of resources and support are higher education services providing students like brandon and now we have to support him and our organization, student veterans of america, may have to come in and support him with advocacy efforts or step in, because since he was kicked out of school, he has to repay the va for the tuition that they've already provided him. and, they've paid to the school. >> alisyn: i mean, the financial support problem here is really the big problem because they want him to pay for this aid himself. is that typical of how veterans are treated? >> well, i don't think this is typical. i think this is a very unique incident and, i think that metro state was really ill-prepared to support him, and, i don't think that they thought something like this would happen and i don't think it would... they thought it was going to gain the kind of attention it already gained,
but, the issue is now, they are going to say that he requires an aide, and they tell him that he needs to provide that support himself. i mean, here's brandon, a student, who is working... or doing this full-time and is trying to get his degree, so he can get a job. and, now he has to face his issue of whether he can actually continue school, and i'm sure he's probably receiving benefits and support provided by the education benefits he's provided from the va. >> alisyn: sure. >> is what supports him and how does he do it if he's kicked out. >> alisyn: and we want our viewers to know we reached out to metro state college for a response and did not get one from them. brandon, what would you like your school to know? i just want to go back to school. first of all, i want to get a job and in order to get a job i need a college education. everywhere i have applied, i'm too overqualified because i had
top-secret security clearance when they do my background check and so i'm just trying to get a job... and in order to do that i have to go to school. >> alisyn: of course and they are making it, basically, financially impossible for you to do that. brandon, and michael, thanks for coming in and explaining the case and let's hope that you can get the money and the college education that you need. we really appreciate it. >> thank you. >> alisyn: thank you so much. >> thank you. >> alisyn: more "fox & friends" in just two minutes. so who ordered the cereal that can help lower olesterol and who ordered the yummy cereal?
